El Picacho del Diablo
By: Jay Holshuh
This inscription was found on a metal plaque on the summit rock of Picacho del Diablo during a trip in April, 1990. I don't know how long it might have been there as other climbers I have talked to who have summited the peak more than once in the recent years do not remember seeing it. I may have mis-copied one portion of it and would like it to be corrected if possible. Also I am very curious who this person was. I think the plaque was probably placed by the Club Alpinista of Tijuana or Ensenada as some such group seems to have organized the peak register.
